Ruby Wine

One more makeup look inspired by another artist! This time @nikki_makeup on Instagram. Her original look, seen at the bottom of this post, is more of a classic glam look done in an unusual colour scheme (and against her models wonderful yellow eyes, DAMN!), so I pulled the pastel purple/wine colour combo into a more gothic direction and exchanged the matte metallic lip for a glossy creme. The purple is so different against our eye and hair colours, it's like a completely different eye look even though that is the most similar part. HahaI really like the idea of doing more of these looks, simply honoring (I HOPE lol) someone elses work by recreating it. Or more like paraphrasing in this case, I love the idea of not limiting the recreation to being a plain copy of the original work (like for example the cloud shaped eye makeup that is trending on Instagram this week and every makeup account is creating an identical version, like OK we have seen it now), more like picking key elements and putting them into your own context. Seeing what someone elses technique turns into when borrowed.Working with other peoples looks really helps me personally make choices I usually wouldn't, and to take things further/stop earlier than I would instinctively do. I also feel that exchanging ideas like this with clear sources of inspiration keeps us from our personal bubbles, maybe a good way to tie artists together as well as a way to share our audiences? Let's make interaction a thing in the beauty community nowwww!!
